Last year under the direction of Alessandro Michele, Italian luxury label Gucci made a big splash with the roll out of the Ace sneaker collection, featuring classic white leather kicks, marked by embellishment. The collection was an immediate hit, not just because it featured the label’s prestigious logo, but also because it introduced a new design element that turn the seriousness of athletic design on its head, offering something whimsical and feminine instead.
For whatever reason, it was the embroidered flowers the really captured everyone’s imagination, and it wasn’t long before sneaker customizers were offering their own versions, a trend lead by FRE Customs‘ Nike Air Force 1 sneaker featuring embroidered red poppies, just like the Gucci Ace.
FRE Customs is now offering a custom Cherry Blossom Yeezy (above) and at the same time, multiple brands Zara to Ferragamo are offering white sneakers embellished with details that speak to their label’s personality.
In honor of the arrival of spring, enjoy a Snobette Ten list of embroidered white sneakers below.
